Some Useful Statistical Blogs

A group of statistical bloggers had lunch together at the Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) in San Diego. I’ll post links to their blogs for those of you interested in resources in statistics. The luncheon was organized and led by Rick Wicklin.

Two of the bloggers discuss statistical software. David Smith of Revolution Analytics posts daily on topics of interest to R users at blog.revolutionanalytics.com.  Rick Wicklin of SAS posts about topics in statistical computing, statistical programming, and data analysis. His blog is at blogs.sas.com/content/iml/author/rickwicklin/. Both David and Rick include graphics in their topics. Both have large followings and are very respected. I was aware of their blogs before JSM.

I learned of the following blogs at the luncheon.

Yossi Levy’s blog, sci-princess.info, is written in Hebrew. However, he tells us he’s planning to write a stat blog in English soon.

Patricia English is one of a number of bloggers at thinksciencenow.com. She discusses clinical trials and drugs.

John Johnson, blogger at realizationsinbiostatistics.blogspot.com, writes about a variety of topics in statistics and biostatistics.
